This was my first time going to homecoming; my friends and I had Portillo’s and watched The Great Gatsby during last year’s homecoming. The theme for this year was Phantom of the Opera so we had to wear masks. And we won the homecoming game!! It was freezing cold and the juniors and seniors were a wee bit annoying with their screaming. My friends and I were in front of them so they were practically yelling in our ears. Nonetheless it was good game.
I had to put on my makeup even though I didn’t know how lol. I couldn’t decide what to do with my hair; I changed it five times before settling down on putting it on one side.
We went to the park near our school to take pictures then we headed to Dunkin Donuts because we didn’t want to be early. We were fashionably late. *hair flip*
The dance wasn’t as fun as I thought it would be, to be honest. There was too much grinding (lol) and many of them were wasted. Also, someone else had the same dress as me, which was awkward because we would always run into each other. I wanted to leave already after an hour but my friend made me stay through the whole thing. When I was getting in the car to leave, my shoe fell and I slipped an s word lol (my friend’s mom heard me huhu). There was a line of cars behind us and I was frantically trying to retrieve my shoe from under the car. It was embarrassing.
Hi! Are you done reading Anna and the French Kiss? hihihi
Yup! I finished it two weeks ago :3
The first geography club trip this year was to the World Music Fest in Chicago. It was really chilly, which I would’ve liked if not for the rain that accompanied the cold weather throughout the entire day.
The train ride took forever and we were all just so ready to stuff our mouths with food. We ate at a cafe near Millennium Park. I was gonna get a soup and hot chocolate but I wasn’t ready yet when the lady asked me for my order so I just said the first thing I saw on the menu, which was a panini lol. I’m really undecisive and bad at talking to other people.
The first musicians who played were Pablo Menendez & Mezcla from Cuba. They played for an hour but we didn’t see the whole thing because we were still eating when they began.
The second one was La Bottine Souriante from Québec. Their music was really catchy and everyone in our group was dancing, including my teacher. He probably danced the most out of everyone at the concert and I was just feeling embarrassed for him lol. There was also a lot of tap dancing by the band. When they ended, my teacher was chanting, “One more song!” and he sounded like he was on the verge of tears haha.
Th Bean at night! My camera failed me on the moment I needed it the most. There was moisture inside the lens and it wouldn’t evaporate quickly, hence the blurs on the next pictures.
Annalee and I with matching Gryffindor scarves! There was a bunch of people who complimented us. Potterheads everywhere~
We saw ABC News getting ready to film. We just kept on waving at them hoping they would show us on tv. Sadly, they didn’t.
The city lights were so pretty.
Fog covering the top of Sears Tower.
We got home at 11:30 pm and I just flopped myself on the bed when I got home. It was a great night filled with really good music!
